Since 1927 every 2 years, a special Boy Scout jamboree has been held in Cincinnati called Peterloon. In 2012, over 5,000 Scouts from 4 states participated including 16 Scouts from Saint Ignatius.
For Troop 850 Scouts and Adults to participate, complete the permission slip and turn in along with $32 fee per person by October 7th. Currently, we are still in need of more Troop 850 Adult leaders to attend to make the campout a success.
Webelos from Pack 850 will be joining us, so we would like a large group of Boy Scouts to join them. For Scouts age 14 and up, also complete the waiver below if you plan on doing the zip line or climbing tower.
This year’s Peterloon theme is “Are You Tougher than a Boy Scout”. For details on how Peterloon entertains 5,000 Scouts for a weekend, go to http://www.danbeard.org/peterloon/
